Title: Otolith Thermal Mass Marking of Hatchery Reared Pink Salmon In PWS

Project Year and Number: 1997: 97188

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99188-CLO, 1998: 98188, 1996: 96188, 1995: 95320-C, 1994: 94320-C

Principal Investigator (PI): Tim Joyce, City of Cordova

Assisting Personnel: David Evans

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will develop otolith marking as a stock separation tool. All hatchery-produced salmon will be marked using this technique. Recoveries of these marks from returning adults caught in mixed-stock fisheries in Prince William Sound will allow improved estimation of the hatchery/wild composition of the catch. Improved estimation will enhance the fishery manager's ability to protect damaged wild pink salmon stocks in mixed-stock fisheries. The project will be conducted over two pink salmon life cycles. Experience with two life cycles is needed to fully develop a program that integrates induced banding code quality, otolith processing rates and costs, and statistical designs for catch sampling.
